Now that you've seen it, what did you think? "So this is the ship they say is unsinkable." It's back in theaters all over again. James Cameron's cinematic epic Titanic has returned in glorious, converted 3D. Given this site didn't exist when the movie first came out in 1997 (though I did see it many times), I thought it'd be fun to start a Sound Off on Titanic, for its 3D re-release this week on the 100th Anniversary of the voyage of the RMS Titanic in April 1912. How was the 3D conversion, did it add to the experience and make a better movie? Once you've seen it in 3D, leave a comment below with your own thoughts on Titanic in 3D.
As I haven't actually seen the full 3D version yet myself (soon!), here are Ethan's thoughts from his recent 3D screening of the movie: "Titanic has never looked better on the big screen. It's one of the most impressive 3D conversions to hit theaters, and it makes the sheer size of Titanic itself and the production value of the film all the more powerful and impressive. Not to mention the fact that the film still holds up after 15 years (the audience laughed in all the right parts and there was plenty of sniffling and tears in my vicinity), this is truly a film that deserves a big re-release and it's worth seeing in theaters all over again."
So what did you think of Titanic in 3D? Did it enhance the epic experience, or dull it down? We will remove any comments that indicate you have not seen the movie, as this area is meant to discuss the film only once you have seen it and can talk about your thoughts.
